Rai pledges to help sacked TV company staff

BEIRUT: Maronite Patriarch Beshara Rai vowed Sunday that he would follow up on the case of employees who were sacked by a leading television production firm.

Rai’s remarks were made in front of a delegation from the Production and Acquisition Company, which visited him in Bkirki to ask for support.

“We are asking favors from no one, we only demand legal, social rights and respect from the companies that these people worked for,” Rai said.
